Jeff Radcliffe Wires URSS Field At Wakeeney Speedway
The United Rebel Sprint Series rolled in the Wakeeney Speedway Sunday night for night number one of the annual Memorial Day weekend show. Despite the efforts of Mother Nature to dampen the hopes of area dirt track fans, Track Promoter Terry Cunningham and his staff went beyond the call to make sure fans got to see the show. The rains during the week provided a lightning fast racing surface and the 26 teams that made the trek wasted no time in giving the fans in the stands a great show.
The A Feature line up was once again determined by the “Revenge Draw” format since many of the drivers attending didn’t have a point average. The top ten drivers in passing points were brought to the front stretch where they had to draw a pill, the catch being they could not keep it for themselves they had to give it to another driver. Jeff Radcliffe was the last driver without a starting spot and the last pill left to be drawn was the pole. The Hill City driver made the most of that gift as he and Craig Jecha led the field to the green. Radcliffe wasted no time jumping to the lead followed by Cody Lampe, Conner Atkinson, Jecha and Zach Blurton rounded out the top five after lap one. A quick caution flew on lap two as Austin Mclean got up into the loose stuff and spun in turn four. Click here for the rest of the story..
Jed Werner Claims First URSS Career Win at The Duel At The “D”
The United Rebel Sprint Series kicked off its 10th Anniversary Season at the Liberal Fairgrounds Speedway with twenty four teams making the trip to the 3/8’s mile ‘D’ shaped oval. The track has hosted the Rebels several times and the unique shape of the track has always produced some great racing action for the fans.
Since this was the first race of the season for the Rebels, a “Revenge Draw” was used to determine the top ten qualifiers out of the heat races. Each of the heat race qualifiers drew a number 1 – 10, but they had to give that number to another driver. 2013 and 14 National Champion Jake Bubak drew the 1 pill and gave it to 2014 Kansas Region Rookie of the Year, Jed Werner, putting the second year driver on the pole for the A-Main. He would make the most of that opportunity by leading every lap and taking his very first URSS feature victory .
At the drop of green pole sitter Jed Werner took off with the lead as Kaden Taylor, Koby Walters, Zac Taylor and Jake Bubak rounded out the top five. By lap six C. J. Johnson had begun his push towards the front from his tenth place starting position, on lap eight took over the fifth spot. Werner stretched out his lead and was pulling away from the rest of the field with Zach Taylor and Kaden Taylor holding the second and third spots.
